Replacement E with special treatment.
Tin-plated E string for the 4/4 violin Dominant set.
These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings. The resounding success of Thomastik's Dominant string owes a lot to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut's attendant drawbacks.
The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance, its ability to project sound without being metallic, comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Other advantages are Dominant's effortless response to intricate fingering and its tuning stability even under extreme atmospheric conditions. But Dominant's beauty of tone is not as long lasting as that of a steel string, a price the discerning musician will be prepared to pay for this quality of sound. Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color.
N.B. The playing and tuning peg length of the string are critical, so the string used should be exactly matched to the instrument's measurements.

Comments about Thomastik Dominant Violin 4/4 Tin-plated E String:
The Dominant E is a good product at a good price. Its playability seems unaffected by the wearing of the plating. Its response is as good as any E string that I've tried, and I've tried a lot of them. At that price, it's worth a try.
